Some new stuff

I had a couple of unfinished drawings that I finally got finished. The other one is just a close-up of the eye of a dragon, and the other one is a creature design. The latter came to be actually through a random silhouette sketch, that appealed to me somehow.

I also managed to submit images to my new deviantart account. Here's the link if you feel like checking it out:

Weekly Theme #9: Saltwater Town + Something

Ugh, I grew tired of this one. The things in the pillars are meant to be saltpiles that dry and get attached.

Anyway, the last time in the meeting I did some random thumbnails, and we also tried out a thumbnailing session with Szabi and Ulysse. Basicly we decided a subject which was a "warehouse", and then all of us made four 10-minute thumbnails of the subject.

We could (and I think should) make this kind of excercises in the future meetings. For example pick a subject, go through and sketch out from reference for 15-30 minutes, and after that start doing 15-minute thumbnails, and everytime after a thumbnail is done look through the reference material again.

The goal would be to practice for at least an hour with the whole group, people could of course do their own stuff still after and before it. And there are a lots of possibilites how and what to practice with a group. Tell me what you guys think of this, are you interested?

Weekly Theme #8: Mechanical Creature + Other Stuff

Here's a bunch of stuff I've been doing lately, so in order:
2 colorstudies from photoreference, a birthday present for my friends (they are brothers), some random fat scifi/fantasy samurai in progress, finished tankpicture and the theme #8 which is somekind of public transport elephant vehicle. I also have a composition of the elephant in mind but we'll see if I manage to pull it off. :)

Frozen world character concept.

Just wanted to get some feedback on this design. She is stout and heavily built for the harsh (also high gravity) environment she lives in. Kinda the beginnings of this world I've had in my mind for a long time. Hopefully more to come...

The first one is more of a looser sketch where I focused on dynamics and flow. I'm planning on painting it onto a big canvas... The second one is a quick photo study of Leonard Cohen. :)

Minna's stuff

The first one was supposed to be the spider cavern, but I guess it became just a generic fantasy-swamp-speedpaint.. The other one was a study and also a gift for my mother for Christmas.

Skyrim has been fun but as soon as my vacation ends its time to start working again ;)

Vablo's Studyweek

Here are some studies (all from photoreference) I managed to do within the week, and once again I came to the conclusion that it is really useful... Damn those colors, really hard to get them right but I guess it's just a matter of practice.
